Software Assessment in its last telco meeting declined to take some new policy changes with links modifications, according to p20100306:

     Policy Officer may make the following changes,
     where it is clear that the change does not
     change the policy:

        URLs to track any links that move,
        grammatical errors,
        anchors, HTML errors & formatting,
        COD numbers and formatting
        other minutiae,

They said that, as the Policy Officer position is not listed in the Officer's page, they decline to recognise the effect of the motion.

Motion p20100306 has been very valuable because it has meant we can do things without wasting everyone's time. Policy group attention is our most valuable resource, we don't want to squander it. Following a suitable notification, it's done and complete, and policy group can concentrate more on real work.

Still, the message is clear, Software Assessment have decided to stop after 3 years of success. I want to preserve the intent of the motion, and I see three possibilities:

   1. vote on a policy officer.

   2. adjust the above words so they say Policy Team instead
      of Officer, and add a caveat that the changes are
      notified to policy group (our general practice anyway).

   3. incorporate words into PoP to that effect.

What do people think?  Prefer 1,2,3 or something else?

I apologise in advance, but it looks like we're in for another vote on stuff we already have strong consensus on, and strong practice.
